The Ministry of Justice has announced that more free mediation sessions will be funded by the government, an announcement which has been welcomed by relationship charity Relate.
Recommendations were made by the Mediation Task Force which is an independent body. The government has decided that it will implement some of these recommendations which will include:
Mediation offers couples an out of court method of making agreements in relation to separation and divorce. Between April 2007 and March 2013 two thirds of couples who entered publicly funded mediation managed to reach agreements. This option avoids much of the conflict associated with a court hearing as well as being faster and more cost-effective. Additionally it can improve communication between the parties which going forward is better for them, particularly if there are children involved.
